Flowers Squared

Happy Friday!
I hope your week has gone well. Today I want to share a card using parts of a couple of images. One of the reasons I love DRS images is that they are so versatile. For both of the images on the card front, I used only a part of the image. Sometimes it's good to take a look at stamps you have and see how they look as a partial image or if they can be used in a different way.

TIP: Die cut or punch a square (or other shape) in a piece of scrap paper. Take the punched opening and move it around on your stamped image to see what looks best. Then lightly pencil the frame so you know where to cut or punch.

The bloomin' huge flower was stamped a few times and I used a small square die to cut the four flower parts out. After coloring w/ markers and a water brush I attached them to slightly larger black die cut squares. I used a stripe embossing folder on the top 2/3 of the white layer and attached the squares.

For the sentiment, I used only the first line. I liked the pretty script font of the greeting and it's really large enough to stand on its own. I used a small corner rounder to mimic some of the word window punches. I die cut a fancy tag out of black and inserted my greeting. Stickles was added to the flower centers. The finished card measures 4.25 x 5.50.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!
